Get to the trailhead, race starting line or staging area safely and with style. The Softride Dura 4-Bike Rack carries up to four bikes - up to 160lbs of total weight, so you can take family and friends along for the ride.
Your bikes will travel in comfort and with nearly no movement thanks to the over-molded, anti-sway cradles. And, they'll stay where you put them with the help of the secure rubber straps and retractable anti-theft cable. Plus, QuiteRide locking and tightening technology prevents that annoying road rattle common with lesser hitch mount racks. The end-of-arm safety reflectors round out the rack for blazing nighttime visibility.
Need to get into the rear of your vehicle? The Softride Dura 4-Bike Rack easily lowers out of the way for quick access. Plus, your bikes stay horizontal while you grab your gear. What's more, this rack is built to last from powder-coated steel, yet weighs in at a manageable 39lbs. As if that weren't enough, the Softride Dura is backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

Still a great rack and bullet proof. My old Softride rack survived 2 rear end accidents! The new rack features anti-sway braces for the bikes, a cool feature but 1 more step to anchor bikes to the rack. The arms are closer together to accommodate different frames, requiring the anti-sway braces. This rack is taller which, and keeps the bikes from bottoming out on large dips. More plastic than the old one, but everything is sturdy! A little bouncy,fits 4 bikes with a little finesse.

The only thing about this I dont like is that the supporting bars are not adjustable. It fits adult bikes okay but smaller bikes I have a problem mounting them and when I do finally get the bikes on, it would have been easier to put the bike in the van or truck. Definitely purchase the Softride Top Tube Bike Frame Adapter for each girl bike you own.

The Softride Access Dura 4-Bike Rack was quite easy to install well made fit and finish. I have used it once since purchasing. The rubber straps used to secure the bike are a bear to cinch down as you need the grip strength of a gorilla to pull down and stretch the hole in the strap over the cleat. I finally resorted to using a pair of pliers hoping not to damage the straps which are thick and rugged. The anti-sway device works as it should and the bikes did not move around. It does not rattle

The swing down arm feature is convenient and easy to use. The rubber straps can be difficult to stretch into their holes, but we also tried doing this when it wasn't too warm out. I'm guessing they will be easier when the rubber warms up. The bikes did not bounce around when traveling down bumpy roads.

WHAT I LIKE SO FAR IS THE WAY IT LOWERS THE BIKE CLOSE TO THE GROUND FOR EASE OF LOADING AND UNLOADING THIS COMES IN HANDY AS I AM A SMALL PERSON AND NOT ABLE TO RAISE ITEMS UP VERY FAR. INSTALLATION WENT SMOOTH AND I AM GETTING USE TO THE RACK ON THE BACK OF THE SUBARU, AS IT SHOWS PARTIALLY IN REAR CAMERA. OVERALL I AM EXCITED TO GET OUT AND GO RIDING.
